pull that up. a big difference. barack obama had 53% to john mccain's 43%. what does it tell you? for weeks we have been hearing the media paint a storyline while obama is ahead in early voting. now we know that isn't true. particularly in states like ohio, florida, ohio -- >> dana: nevada. >> andrea: same thing, nevada. ohio fewer dems voted in ohio compared to 2008. 30,000 more republicans have voted. if obama had that lead with mccain and long at 2008, but only led by three points with likely voters romney leads the likely voters by five points. he won bison overall. if you look at the same panorama, it's all over. >> bob: in reality, you talk about the final vote in 2008 versus a week left to go to vote. people who vote early. you have to separate absenteeism from early voting. two separate things. people who vote early are senior citizens and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on elec
internal targets and the romney campaign is doing much better than john mccain did in 2008. that secondary aspect, doing better than john mccain is insufficient. john mccain did virtually nothing in early voting. the romney campaign is doing much better but it's a low bar. the obama campaign feels very good about its own metrics and believes by the time election day actually arrives, they'll have sizeable leads in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly even in florida, enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day. >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is becoming a huge and important trend in american presidential politics. >> thank you, major. >> major garret, thank you so much. >>> time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern california campus. four people were wounded and two people have been detained. officials shut down the campus and urged students to
higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was
and a lot of ads to pull because a hurricane. you can only put so many ads. john mccain did the same thing with sarah palin at the end of the last campaign. at a sort of the campaign is that do that are in a little bit of desperation of. there can expand that because they're looking for something to get something extra. >> it does seem a lot more difficult for met romney to reach to 70 than it does for present obama. >> if you look at the delegate totals present obama needs 34 more out of the 85 they're out there. that basically means at the as ohio and wisconsin all he basically needs it is if you won virginia a would be over. he basically needs 10 more delegates. that accommodation of colorado + one or i a lot and nevada. that equals the magic to 70. romney has a much higher bar to clear. he basically has to almost round the table of the swing states. florida colorado early budding is turning his way he has some good markers but without ohio and without wisconsin it becomes a very tough road for him. this will all be about get out and vote for the last two days. >> house is looking for p

either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
. but you know, four years ago we saw john mccain and sarah palin come here to pennsylvania the last minute. we have seen other republicans like bob dole in '96 and president obama as well make pitches here in pennsylvania. they were not successful either. fred? i guess we'll find out on november 6th, right? >> just three days away. appreciate it. we'll check back with you throughout the afternoon. >>> it has been five days since superstorm sandy and the gas crunch in new jersey is so severe that the governor there is calling for gas rationing. plus, will polling places in new jersey be up and running in time for the election? we'll see what's being done. to . while energy development comes with some risk, north america's natural gas producers are committed to safely and responsibly providing generations of cleaner-burning energy for our country, drilling thousands of feet below fresh water sources within self-contained well systems. and, using state-of-the-art monitoring technologies, rigorous practices help ensure our operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment.
now say they're going to vote for remain knee. have you heard anyone say they voted for john mccain and now they're going to vote for president obama? >> i'd be surprised if such a person actually exists. i think that romney is basically counting on the mccain vote, which is frankly not very big. 46% of the last time turnout. so he needs to start with that and build on it. but what we just heard there with paul ryan and mitt romney i think that is exactly the difference between these campaigns. campaigns. president obama can't say that. he can give that speech but no one, his record shows that is not who he is. i think they have a winning argument. i hope they win because i believe romney-ryan will have an opportunity to really address problems and i might say, too, gretchen, on the foreign stage, they're both novice, but i think their instincts are right about american power. i think across the board, they'll do a better job. >> gretchen: check him out on the "new york post." thank you. we're tracking sandy this morning. it will make landfall tonight. for some, the damage already
that we would have access to? >> knows he's got to release them. supposedly john mccain saw lots of years and we've all been waiting for the week, but we haven't gotten it yet. >> they are no more than yours would be. >> you don't think the media has that and they just are not seeing it right now? and there is nothing to compel him with? >> shame. >> okay. thank you. >> i feel like we've been seeing more dialogue in the mainstream circles and i think we need to be talking about that more one of the things we are starting to see more is around what white people would have to get up and what that would mean, and that could go a lot of different deductions and i have seen a lot of interesting dialogue. do you agree that there is more of that happening and how can we foster that in a really healthy way so that white people can start to recognize what that might look like and be more healthy about making for people of color while recognizing that it is okay for us if we are giving things up what does that look like? >> i guess when i think of white privilege one of the things is and array of p
for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time there? >> we want to make sure we lock it in. and, again, we want to put the choice in front of the american people. mitt romney wants to take us back to an economic theory that got us into this mess with tax cuts for the rich that he hopes trickles down and somehow helps the middle class. that's not ch
romney's going to outperform john mccain in a lot of states he's going to lose and a lot of states he's going to win. i think it's fair to say that the idea of the split is very possible. that mitt romney's -- sort of the sheer momentum. and there is sort of two forces at work here in this campaign, right? the obama campaign metrics the census and demographics versus joe, i think what you and i feel like we see going on in this campaign the last two weeks, which is the good old-fashioned, well, which candidate is on his message at the right time, seems to be peaking, and that's romney, right? so the two different forces are converging. and i think in the battleground states, it's left this muddy picture. but i think that's why you see in a pennsylvania and a minnesota where the campaign itself hasn't interacted very much where romney's gotten more benefit of the doubt. so there is some consistency in the nonbattleground states. >> and when you talk about split, you're talking about mitt romney winning the popular vote and the president possibly winning the electoral college. >> that's
